Review: The Little Zebra Who Learnt His Colours

Little Zebra loves painting, and where better to find all the colours of the rainbow, than in the garden. Little Zebra’s garden has poppies and buttercups, tulips and marigolds, and other flowers. There’s also a vine that reaches far up into the sky.

Little Zebra adds the red, yellow, blue, pink, green, white, orange and purple of his garden to his painting, and as he does, we learn which colours go with each of the plants. When the artwork is complete, Little Zebra unveils it to an appreciative audience.

The Little Zebra Who Learnt His Colours is a cute board book with an endearing protagonist. Each page features a different colour and plant, a simple way to introduce these concepts to young children. The text is large print and when the colours are mentioned, they are displayed in that colour. There are also three flaps for children to lift as they progress through the story.

Look out for other books in this beautifully designed series, including The Little Joey Who Lost Her Bounce, The Little Elephant Who Lost His Bath, The Little Bear Who Lost Her Way, and others.
